About Me

My updated portfolio can be found here:

Dear all Modelmayhemites

I am Alex of Sparks dot Media, an Italian photographer with more than 20 years of international experience in the fashion industry, including advertising campaigns, product design development, catwalk preparation and documentation, magazine editorials, catalog preparation, model portfolio and young photographer training.
I mostly work for the cinema industry but have a lot of fun with Fashion, portrait and bodyscape photography.

I am actually travelling a lot for my business and all times I have the pleasure to shoot with the local resident models, my most frequent destinations are: Switzerland, Italy, California (mostly Los Angeles and San Diego) and Holland.

I always have a lot of projects in my mind that go beyond the stuff I generally do for work, and I am always looking for new stuff and challenges that the professional activity cannot give. So, in case you would love to collaborate with me, I will always be happy to dedicate some of my time for an interesting TF (free test) project, so, do not feel shy to contact me: I don't bite.
Any actor in the field is welcome: models, stylists, designers, hair stylists, magazines etc...
for every Job I pretend to exchange a very detailed release form with all duties and rights of all parts involved, it is a form I have prepared along the years together with some clients and models who were also lawyers: It is a matter of seriousness having it, and it covers both parts needs, not only mine: feel free to ask it to me.

I am always available for professional activity too: including full professional model portfolio for agencies, collaboration with clothing designers for launch campaigns, catalogues, furniture and design item documentation with or without people in them.
Just call me, we will discuss the project and find a solution to maximise the results with the budget you have.

In any case, please take a look to my images to see a small sample of what I do.

Nikon Professional Service (NPS) certification

This was my first shoot with Alex, his pre comms were good and he arrived on time.
He knew what he wanted and planned the shoot well.
He pushed me athletically pose wise and it was worth it seeing the images Smile
Thanks Alex

I had a great photo shoot. He is very professional, gives very good advice especially with posing. Knows what he is doing and would highly recommend him. Thanks again

I have no idea why it took us a couple of years to shoot together again! Alex is super professional, always on time and full of great ideas and talent of course.
The shots came out lovely and he made me feel at ease from the start. He's a genuinely friendly guy and an awesome photographer. Highly recommended!

Ria Fantastic
Great photographer, knows how to direct and what's looks good on camera. Very thoughtful and timely. Alex is great!

Second shoot with Alex, this time a boudoir/lingerie project. He was extremely respectful the whole time, combined my ideas with his. We worked together one whether an idea worked on not and led us to doing some very artful images.
Would definitely recommend

I worked with Alex for the first time last week with my good friend and model Lottie21. It was great to meet and shoot with Alex, and he managed to get some really lovely images in the short shoot that we had. Alex is full of creative ideas and communicates these very well with his model. Alex was entirely respectful and lovely to work with, and I would have no hesitation in recommending shooting with him should you have the opportunity Smile
Thank you Ale!

I worked with Ale for the the first time alongside my friend and model Bex White. I had a great shoot and even though it was only for an hour we managed to achieve some great images! Ale turned up on time with plenty of ideas and his communication was great from start to finish.
He is great photographer and has some mad but lovely ideas! He is great fun to work with and an all round professional, polite and respectful!
I really enjoyed my time working with Alex and the time literally flew by! I would highly recommend Alex and would love to work with him again!

I had a lovely autumnal nude in the woods shoot with Alex yesterday. He was very professional and considerate- always checking that I was warm enough, and he had great creative ideas for compositions. He is very knowledgeable and kind, and talented- he gave me good and clear directions- he is a real pleasure to work with. I hope to work with Alex again.
Highly recommended.

I am really pleased I got the opportunity to work with Alex on a bridal gown shoot.
He is a great and very professional photographer, easy going guy and makes you feel comfortable straight away. We produced some perfect shots in a cosy and relaxed environment. Communication before and after the shoot was great. Can only highly recommend him and hope to have the chance to work with him again!

Had an absolutely brilliant shoot tonight with Alex. An true gentlemen, this photographer knows exactly what he wanted to achieve and how to get there. Giving great direction Alex helped me achieve some excellent poses. From what I saw on camera, we are in for some perfect shots.
With excellent pre shoot communication, and a layed back but professional attidude, we had a smooth and easy shoot. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Alex again.
Thankyou for a great shoot, I cannot wait to see the images! Smile

Really enjoyed the shoot with Alex today. Alex had good communications before the shoot and his ideas were very creative and I was glad to be involved.

Alex is very knowledgeable about photography and also put me at ease during shooting.
Alex has great ideas and lovely to work with. His images are stunning and he has a real passion for the photography he does; wonderful.
Thank you Alex.

"Thank u for nice words :) We had a shooting in an interesting hotel, all was well organised, the photographer also helped me with getting to the bus station later, which is very nice. Happy u like my outfits, the photographer who knows what he wants to see exactly in terms of poses and expressions, but trying to give the model opportunities for self expression too." Read less
